The Dollar Man

2 o’clock in the morning. “Here, here, the man said. He touched first one, then another, then a third, then a fourth person on the shoulder. “Here. I have something for you.” The people looked at him with surprise and amazement. Their tired eyes saw green, green strips of paper. “What is it?” one of them asked. The man grinned. Someone was holding on to his arm. “It’s a dollar bill. I am giving you each a dollar bill. It’s for you to go and buy coffee in the morning.” One or two of the persons was on the point of laughing. With great difficulty, they kept a straight face. “Thank you,” they told the man.” Your generosity is quite unusual.”

    well written. were the men laughing because it’s hard to find a cup of coffee for a dollar in NY? Still well written street scene.

      Yes, $1 for a cup of coffee is hard in NYC. Besides, a dollar is demeaning. Appreciate your comment.
